RIM Quietly Adds Support for OS 4.5 and Up to BlackBerry Messenger 7 w/BBM Voice
Ready to click the green phone anytime ?
Back on December 10 2012ResearchIn Motion released BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) v126.96.36.199. When BBM version 188.8.131.52 hit BlackBerry World there was only support for OS 6, 7 and 7.1 devices. It seem as though RIM has quietly added support for OS 4.5 and higher now. BBM 7 includes BBM Voice which allows for FREE WiFi calling to any of your BBM contacts that have it installed on their BlackBerry smartphone. Hit the break for more.
IMPORTANT EDIT (thanks O_M !)
As TW by BlackBerryHelp this morning, it seems that this info ... well ... isn't.

UPDATE 01-27-2013 : While it is known for a few days (weeks ?) now, BBM7 beta is now supporting OS5+ devices.

Quite generous of RIM to develop support for such old devices with BlackBerry 10 right around the corner - good on them!Passport (10.3.1.2726) | iPhone 6 (8.3) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1 GDR2, Lumia Denim) | Surface Pro 3 (256GB i5, W8.1)

From the site listed in the OP.
*Update* According to a few sources BBM 7 with BBM Voice is still not supported on OS 4.5, 5 (Although RIM is working on legacy support). We made a mistake in posting this article and are very sorry for the confusion.
